8th Annual NCGA Two-Person Scramble Championship| Poppy Hills / Pacific Grove | December 13-14, 2021
The scramble championship started in 2014 due to the popularity of the scramble format. Even though “scramble” is the most popular form of play in the United States, it was not formally recognized as a format of golf under the Rules until 2019. Due to the unique format, the NCGA has created a set of Rules to govern play for the Scramble Championship.
ENTRIES CLOSE: November 21, 2021
ENTRY FEE: $350 per team (includes cart).
ELIGIBILITY: Both players must be NCGA Members and have a current numeric Handicap Index on their club’s master report on the date of registration. Partners do not need to be members of the same club.
FORMAT: The championship will be 36 holes of stroke play (18 holes per day) in a Scramble format. Play will be 35% of the lower Course Handicap and 15% of the higher Course Handicap.
General Scramble Format: A side will start the play of each hole and then select the side’s best shot. Both partners play their next stroke from the chosen spot. This procedure is followed on every shot until the ball is holed. Sides are required to select each partner’s tee shot at least six times throughout a round. NOTE: A side may not use the six inches to place a ball outside a penalty area or onto the putting green without penalty. Partners may play in the order they consider best.
SCRAMBLE FORMAT RULES: Rules of event
FLIGHTS: Teams will be divided into flights based on the team’s total handicap index (using decimal points) based on the November 30th index.
